Comprehension of Grammatically Modified and Nonmodified Sentences of Second Language Learners.
Issidorides, Diana C.; Hulstijn, Jan H.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v13 n2 p147-71 Jun 1992
The question explored is whether native speakers'"simplified" or modified utterances, as in foreigner-talk (FT), actually facilitate comprehension for nonnative speakers hearing such utterances. It is concluded that linguistically more complex input will not necessarily impede comprehension. (49 references) (Author/LB)
